Job from Kenya on May 16, 2018
Job is naturally a very cheerful young man but today he was extremely happy that he had been discharged to go home! He woke up very early to prepare himself, and his dad helped him where he needed an extra hand. He chose a very nice shirt to wear and when we saw him, we thought he was very handsome so we took a picture! Job will need to go back to school soon so that he doesn't miss out on the material being covered, please pray for quick recovery and for maximum concentration once he is back to school!

Brian from Kenya on May 15, 2018
What’s missing from this photo is BRIAN! Brian was scheduled to come for clinic today and as promised, he did and his adorable smile came too! Unfortunately, after this, things got a little messy. We saw Brian around some, but when he left we didn’t really realize he was leaving and we didn’t get a photo. On top of which, we’re not sure when we’ll see him next because he got a cast put on by the local team at the clinic where we held our mobile clinic. Please be praying that he’ll be able to come to another one of our mobile clinics so that he can get measured for his orthotic!

When you are in the hospital, resting is one of the most important things to do. After surgery yesterday, Job only wanted to rest. His dad told us that he slept really well. When we saw him this morning, he was still sleeping. We are grateful to God for a successful surgery and we continue to ask for healing for Job. Please pray for Job as well that his restoration will be smooth!

Hope from Kenya on May 15, 2018
Poor Hope couldn’t shake off her fever. It didn't break quite yet so this means that she cannot have surgery today. Hope and her mum were discharged from the hospital and will come back for surgery when Hope’s fever problem is completely dealt with. We believe that just like Jesus healed Simon-Peter’s mother-in-law in Luke 4:38-39, He will come through for Hope. Please dear friends, pray for Hope and her mum as they travel home and pray for Hope’s quick recovery so that she is able to have surgery.

Job from Kenya on May 14, 2018
Because Job was born with brittle bone disease, it not only complicates his life by causing his bones to misbehave and sometimes break, but it also brings another complication - more visits to the OR. The type of rods that are placed in his legs to help stabilize them are called rush rods. Unfortunately, they do not grow with Job, so as he grows, the rush rods become too small and his bone starts to bow at the point where the rod ends. That’s what was happening to Job this time, so once again, he’s back with us. He’s already been through surgery and a new rush rod has been placed. Can you see how much straighter the bone is already?! This is exciting for him! Please pray that as he grows, he won’t have to go back to the OR too many more times!

Cyprian Carl from Kenya on May 14, 2018
Two weeks ago, Cyprian had his tenotomy done and was scheduled to come today. We saw him and his mum and he was dressed in a very cool sweater that helped keep him warm! Cyprian needs to wear a cast for one more week before he can start wearing braces. We thank God for how far they’ve been able to come!

Prince from Kenya on May 14, 2018
Prince came to CURE for review and a cast change today. His mum was so interested to see the progress her son had made so far. She was concerned that the skin on his legs had become so hard after the cast was removed. Prince seemed to relax without the cast on and felt some freedom. They are both doing well and we’ll see them again next clinic!

Hope from Kenya on May 14, 2018
“Bye,” Nurse Mary said to Mary, Hope’s mama. “I’ll bring her!” and then Mary proceeded to show Hope video and photos of another cute little girl. We even told Nurse Mary that Hope had given us a kiss and Mary got a kiss too. Hope had a small fever today so she didn’t go for surgery, but tomorrow will hopefully be her day!

Blessed from Kenya on May 14, 2018
Because you had blessed Blessed with more Get Well messages, sooo many, we had the chance to share the joy with not only Blessed and his mom, but his dad too! He came because Blessed gets to go home! Blessed won’t be gone for too long though so keep the get well messages coming. Blessed will come back on May 30 to get a cast change in theatre. Please pray that, although Blessed’s casts aren’t ideal for him (or any kiddo) to wear, he’ll still enjoy life and see it’s blessings as he waits for the next step of his treatment!

“Wow! Amen! Thank you so much!” Gladys said as she read through Blessed’s get well messages today. You all have blessed Blessed and his mom with your messages! “I’m grateful,” Gladys told us. “Your prayers have worked.” Blessed had his casts reinforced a bit today cause Gladys told us they had broken, but Blessed is well on his way to being healed and the biggest part -- going to surgery -- is OVER! Thank Jesus with us for this fact and for the smile on Blessed's face!

Blessed from Kenya on May 10, 2018
We had some time with one of the doctors before Blessed’s surgery to find out just how complex the procedure was and we learned that it wasn’t very complex and the doctor told us that it would take not more than two hours. Blessed’s surgery was successful and we pray that his recovery process will be smooth too. Please pray that he is able to sleep tonight and that the pain won’t be too much!

Risper from Kenya on May 10, 2018
“Nine!” This is the age Risper told us that she is turning TODAY! You’ve got it -- today is our beautiful girl’s birthday! When her mom told us this, we had to go make her a birthday card and take her some gifts. These gifts included stickers and crayons and even a toothbrush that one of our pastors gave us from the playroom gift stash. Before we gave her the gifts, we serenaded her with the ‘happy birthday’ song more than once. We hope she goes home today feeling happy and celebrated on her day of birth! We’ll see this new nine year old again in a couple of weeks for a cast change. We’re thankful for all of the get-wells you’ve showered upon Risper and her mom and if you want to send her a happy birthday message, we hope to deliver it when we see her again!

Enock from Kenya on May 10, 2018
“Enock accepted Christ as his Savior!” Pastor Phoebe told us this morning. On Monday Phoebe had the chance to talk to Enock and he said ‘YES’ to Jesus! We’re so happy he’s come to know the God we love and serve. Would you please pray that God will work in Enock’s heart to draw him closer to Jesus? He and his mom left this morning, but not before Enock got his very own Bible! Please also pray that as he waits to come back on May 30th for a checkup, he’ll be reading it!

Can you see the joy there? If only we’d counted the number of times Blessed giggled today. We played balloon, we took his photos, and we looked at his photos too! Blessed shouldn’t have to wait too long for surgery. Tomorrow should be his day! As he heads for surgery, please pray that he’ll remain his joyful self!

Lucy from Kenya on May 09, 2018
Hi friends! Today we are very happy because we saw Lucy and one of her heart’s desires is slowly coming to be a reality for her. When she was discharged to go home, she asked her mum to buy her new shoes because she believed that in the end after she is healed, she will be able to walk. Her mum bought her new shoes but they had to keep them for a while before she could use them. This morning, they carried the new pair of shoes. Lucy was wearing one shoe but she could not wait for her cast to be removed so she could wear the other!She kept on smelling the new shoe and looked very excited at the prospect of wearing it. Her leg looks good and she now needs to wear an AFO but that won’t stop her from wearing her new shoes! Dear friends, we are very happy because of the progress Lucy has made so far and this wouldn’t be possible if it were not for your prayers. Thank you for that! Please pray that the healing process goes on well to completion.

"Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
